So I’m going to go back to separating this and my TBR posts. Feels like less work (if that makes any sense) and I can put more emphasis on the mini reviews for the books I’ve read. Also it gives me a few more days to think of what I want to read next month.
This month I read through three books, or two books depending on how you count them.
A Walk to Remember | by: Nicholas Sparks ★★★★★
I’m not embarrassed to admit that I loved the movie adaptation when it first came out. Sparks’ books are not my usual sort of thing but the kindle version was on sale recently and I figured it was worth a try. It was definitely good for when I was just in the mood for some light reading. I really enjoyed reading the story how it was originally told although I think I’m always going to prefer the movie just a bit more since it’s been one of my favorites for so long. I still loved it though.
Ready Player One | by: Ernest Cline ★★★☆☆
This is one I’ve wanted to read for a little while. I figured a book filled with video game and 80’s pop culture references would be a book I thoroughly enjoyed. I was so disappointed that this wasn’t the case. I spent most of the time reading this bored out of my mind. The only reason I didn’t put it down is because I really wanted to find out how they found the damn easter egg. It kept me interested just enough but there was way too much exposition for my liking, and while it was filled with the awesome video game and 80’s references I was so looking forward to, the author felt the need to explain just about every single one of them.
Doctor Who: Who-ology | by: Cavan Scott, Mark Wright ★★★★☆
Okay, so this isn’t a novel but it was still a fun book to peruse through. It’s been on my shelf for a while and I’ve picked it up to look at random bits of it here and there but this was the first time I’ve flipped through the whole thing. No I didn’t read every word in it (this thing was filled with a lot of charts) but for someone who loves this show it was full of a lot of interesting information.
